Guys who didn’t know or want to work on their own stuff put food on my table and a roof over my head. My oldman laughs all the way to the bank because of them
If y’all had the means to pay someone of quality to work on your shit, would you??
That is what I got you for, right?
I used to. Had some good shit built well over a decade ago. I bought the parts and had the best installers take care of it. It was bitch made and bitch paid. I never heard the end of how i needed to man up and do my own shit again.
Can't win, bro. If you pay for any work, you're not a "car guy" to these people.
Dude right? **** me for not wanting to get greasy and make myself bleed, when i can pay someone else to do all that while i make money lolol
Just trying to help them see the other side no harm no foul in my book, I’m not out to impress people lololol
You know that brotha! I got you!
That’s the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard.
Only sometimes and always for bodywork. I enjoyed the shit out of building my rollcage and all the suspension. Its not a yes or no answer from me rather than would depend on my mood and what else I could be doing with my time. I do get a lot of pride out of the stuff I build even though its far from world class lol.
I am a liar though, I have always paid to have my tires mounted and balanced.. #Fail
It's just a matter of choice. I have a limited amount of time on this Earth. Therefore, I have to be selective about how I spend that time. If it's a choice between, say, spending time with my daughter, or wrenching on my car to impress my friends, I know which I'm doing.
Even if I didn't have a daughter, and it was simply a question of learning something, on the list of things I want to learn more about, wrenching on cars has moved further and further down the list over the years to the point that it's pretty close to the bottom at this point. I know enough to do it if I HAVE to. I simply choose NOT to. If that makes me less of a "car guy", or makes some people like me less, well, then I guess I didn't want those people in my life, anyhow.
I can promise you Im not wrenching on my stuff to impress people, current project is a damn miata... Lol
I didn't call anybody out by name lol. I just know some people do.
We need a dumbest thing posted on SVTP thread.
Bro, IDK what WTF he's talking about lol. My dad is a life long mechanic and made me work on my own cars as a kid/young adult. Saved myself tons of money over the years. But if I had the means I'm paying someone to do the work, lol at worring about someone pointing out I didn't do the work myself.
I hope you know i was just bsing with him. He has a nicely put together truck and works for a performance shop.
Its all good man. I was just busting your balls. My area everyone did their own work or helped out doing it. So i got shit for paying for mine being done professionally. Everyone has a preference and I respect whatever that is.
Built Not Bought
Just so nothing gets misconstrued
Jeff, @blk02edge, and i are buddies, and are merely talking shit. None of us are butthurt.
Oh i know. Y’all are good sports.
This went from 0-180-0 quick...the GT500 is an embarrassment with a 180 top. Blah tire rating downforce blah. If the Jesko can produce 65,000lbs of downforce and still do 300, the GT500 should be more than able.
What do you mean these people?
